together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics. >> as much as we think of this issue as a political untouchable, not the tragedy itself, but policy to prevent yet another tragedy like this. as much as we think of this as a subject that cannot be discussed in washington, president obama has spoken to this issue before today. he has been called to speak to it mostly in response to tragedies like today. but when you look at his remarks combined over time in full, it's just a remarkable chronicle of not just what he has said. what he said must be done. but it is a remarkable chronicle of what has not yet been done. >> it is part of our nature to demand explanations, to try to impose some order on the chaos, to make sense out of that which seems senseless. already we've seen the national conversation commence, not only about the motivations behind these killings, but about everything from the merits of gun safety laws to the adequacy of our mental health system. and much -- much of this process of debating what might be done to prevent
in 2010, point out, launched heritage action, 501-c3 which is renting the floor space in the rest of the heritage building and has been aggressively campaigning. during the congressional voting season against republicans, getting them to vote their way on various bills. irritating a lot of people. a lot of libertarians. a lot of moderates. this signals they're going to step that up. it's perfect for demint who has always done this. you haven't mentioned his legislation in your intro because he wasn't much of a legislator. he passed one bill that renamed a courthouse. he had stuff added to other bills. his strategy was to really slowly replace senators over the course of many years. that's what he'll do from the outside. >> right. he didn't so much create legislation as he created legislators. >> right. >> one thing here, his term if i'm not wrong, goes until 2016. it's somewhat atypical for senators to leave in the middle. being in the minority in the modern senate is not super fun and so it's hard to escape the impression here that a minority status that jim demint helped create
. and these children are our children. and we're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics. this evening, michelle and i but part of it is also looking at other sources of the violence. frankly, in my hometown of chicago are not using ak-47s. we're going to have to come together to prevent more tragedies like this regardless of the politics. >> regardless of the politics, that is the crux from tucson to aurora to being reelected. congresswoman caroline mccarthy joins us. >>> the msnbc policy analyst ezra klein put together a long piece today tying together what he knows about ezra, of course is a policy guy. so he was looking at this through a policy lens. and the data it turns out, some of it is what you might suspect. but some of it really isn't. for example, we all know that there are a lot of mass killings in the united states. gun violence where multiple people are killed by the same assailant. this year alone before what happen today in connecticut, five people were killed in an atlanta suburb in february. a student

random action period before collapsing asleep in its own bowl. i mean, it is adorable. it's transfixing. but it is motion without meaning. it is motion without mastery. it's chaos. it is chaos in the caucus that john boehner is supposed to control. and the thing they are doing, this motion without meaning, even this is still controversial on their own side, making all their think tanks and their anthony visit groups and their pressure groups flip their positions even within a single day, turn on themselves and fight it out. it made them adjourn the house tonight and have a huge fight amongst themselves and ended with them walking out without voting on their own idea. and while that is interesting to watch, the reason there are supposed to be negotiations, really negotiations going on in washington right now is because something really does need to happen. i mean, the bush tax cuts expiring would not be the worst thing in the world for the country. all of the bush tax cuts expiring at the end of the year in terms of their economic impact. but congress really did set up this big trap for

chemical weapons against their own people, but suffice it to say we are certainly planning to take action. >> apparently we are planning to take action. when a conflict has been going on somewhere in the world for a long time, it's sometimes hard to tell when a development in that far-away conflict in that war crosses the line into being a big deal, into being a newsworthy thing for the world. what is maybe happening in syria is one of those things that crosses the line. you can tell by the president and the american secretary of state talked about it today and threatened that the u.s. is going to act in response. i do not know exactly what that means and neither do you, but we're probably not talking about a sternly-worded letter. we're talking about the nerve agents. we're talking about mustard gas. do you remember the doomsday cult back in the mid-'90s that killed 13 people and seriously injured 50 people and temporarily blinded a thousand people? imagine that but with weapons grade disseminated by missile. associated press says that syria is believed to have several hundred ballistic
deliberative body in action. that is also the kind of thing people who don't know how to see the sailboat in washington. it's all games the two parties are playing to prove they are really committed to beating the other side. that's what they have to do. it's part of the whole dance. their base won't trust them. they won't buy the final deal if they don't think their party has fought as hard as they can. if you watch these games closely, it's easy to get depressed. they are petty and sorrowful and vengeful. but behind all that, if you filter it out, if you look at the offers on the table and the counteroffers and in particular if you look at the red lines that are being proposed by john boehner and president obama, if you look at these very closely, a deal is beginning to take shape. watch this. you remember during the presidential campaign what president obama used to say over and over again about tax rates? about what his plan was for tax rates? president obama was crystal clear about what e he wanted. >> i have said that for incomes over $250,000 a year that we should go. back to the r
on monday they need to begin taking action to keep us from breaking through the debt ceiling. they can buy us two months with the tricks they have up their sleeve. if we waste that time, we get to the debt ceiling and we haven't climbed back up the fiscal cliff and the republicans begin playing games with the debt ceiling, that would be fiscal suicide. we breakthrough the debt ceiling, we're talking depression. not a quick recession. it would be the single stupidest and most damaging act of sabotage in american history. and it cannot be allowed to happen. and here, hopefully to tell me why it will not happen is alice, who probably knows more about the budget and the budget deals than probably anybody else alive. she's appointed to president obama's national commission on fiscal responsibility and reform. and she's currently a senior fellow at the brookings institution. thank you for being here tonight. >> happy to be here. >> you know much more about this than i do. you heard the intro, is there anything you want to add or correct anyway you see the fiscal cliff that you think people shoul
. more than two million people live in that city. where will they go? and you see it in the actions of other countries towards syria. syria's closest ally other than iran is russia. today russia moved five warships to the mediterranean to prepare to evacuate russian citizens out of that country. there are a lot of russians who live in syria. and a massive evacuation is something russia had resisted doing all of this time because, we think, they thought it would make their ally look bad. well, now things have progressed in this war to the point where they appear to be no longer concerned than. they are preparing to get their people out. for those of us who are friends of richard and ghazi and john, and of course for their families, today and last night when we learned are just pure joy and relief that they are okay. but for all of us who beyond friendship just admire these guys, right, just admire their work, admire that they're willing to take such risks to report from war zones, the next thing today after the relief and the joy that they have been released unharmed, the next thing
to the families in newtown, but the country needs him to send a bill to congress. calling for meaningful action is not enough, we have not seen leadership, that must end today, it's a national tragedy and it demands a national response. my deepest sympathies are with the families of all those effected and my determination to stop this madness is stronger than ever. in 1993 there was a mass shooting on the long island rail road in new york. congresswoman carolyn mccarthy's husband was among those killed and her son was among the wouned. after the attack, she ran for congress on a gun control platform and won the seat in congress. today in response to what happened in connecticut, she said, these hootings are becoming all too common and it's too easy tore dangerous people to get the weapons that help them perform mass executions like today's. leaders in washington from both parties and groups like the nra all say now is not the time to auction about how gun safety laws save lives in america, i agree, now is not the time to talk good gun laws the, the time was long before all those kids in connect
. real reforms right now, he said. but whether or not there is specific and consequential action at the federal level to reduce gun violence, honestly, specific and consequential action can happen in any town, any time. with almost no notice and very, very little planning. that's what these gun buyback programs show. they can be held in small towns and big cities. they can happen in parking lots or in churches or in grocery stores. the money can come from a local government or it can come from you. it won't solve every problem. it will not prevent every crime. it will not prevent every tragedy related to gun violence. no one thing will. but community-run buybacks hurt no one. they are voluntary. anyone can do them. they can get guns out of the streets and out of the places they are not wanted. the end results of the programs like this are honestly relief and gratitude for the opportunity on all sides. how many things are true of that on any policy issue in this country? this seems like a place to start.

for immediate action is here. it is now. >> allow me a quick update here. that press conference, it came after president obama met with john boehner and nancy pelosi and harry reid and mitch mcconnell, so all the key congressional leaders. and listen to the president here. >> the american people are watching what we do here. obviously, their patience is already thin. this is deja vu all over again. america wonders why it is that in this town for some reason, you can't get stuff done in an organized timetable. why everything always has to wait until the last minute. well, we're now at the last minute. and the american people are not going to have any patience for a politically self-inflicted wound to our economy. not right now. i just have to repeat. you know, outside of washington, nobody understands how it is that this seems to be a repeat pattern, over and over again. ordinary folks, they do their jobs. they meet deadlines. they sit down and they discuss things and things happen. if there are disagreements, they sort through the disagreements. the notion that our elected leadership can't do
to bargain and lift wages for everybody. and i think snyder is action both decides that michigan needs to become a low wage economy, where you have to string together three jobs in order to make ends meet, and eliminate the remaining middle class in the state. and it's bad for economics, and it's bad for our democracy. >> but what is the plan for american labor going forward? this has been a dispiriting year for supporters of the labor movement, or two years, actually in wisconsin and michigan and in michigan. is there in your meetings, is there a strategy for coming back? are these setbacks seen as reversible? >> well, ezra, i see it as a reawake inning of people. dispiriting because the attacks have been so relentless. it's a attacks on workers, on planned parenthood, on immigrants. it's all connected in our minds. so we are reawakening and going to build a powerful movement that we're going to build power in the workplace, build power at the ballot box, build power in the communities. and make it crystal clear that snyder can't get away with this by building a more powerful worker c
actions in these states? would that be legal? are there indicators based on how they act with medical marijuana inç a state like california? >> possibly. the green rush started in 2009 after the ogden memo said if you're in clear compliance with state medical marijuana laws, we're not going to bust you. >> this is from the number two at the department of justice at the time? >> precisely. everyone was confused because of all the busts in california. california as a state does not have clear and unambiguous laws regarding medical marijuana. in colorado where there are clear laws, you don't see the raids in the same way. >> that's interesting. it's possible we'll see forebearance on the part of the federal government? >> potentially. >> uf been doing phenomenal reporting on this issue. thanks for your time. a crash course is how now level at a time a meal for four people. that's up next. ♪ oh oh, oh, oh ♪ you're wonderful ♪ you have a heart of gold [ male announcer ] vera wang love. the new diamond bridal collection from vera wang. exclusively at zales. this is another! ta-daa!

, republican house speaker john boehner put out this stirring call to action. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be led. not as democrats or republicans but as americans. we want you to lead. not as a liberal or conservative but as president of the united states of america. >> mr. president, we are ready to be led. just show us the plan. that was encouraging. that seemed like we were going to have a deal, no problem. obama won the election. he'll hand them a plan. he'll make some small changes. that's how congress works, of course. pass it and we'll be done. we'll go home for christmas. not so much. president obama did hand them a plan as treasury secretary tim geithner made a special trip all the way to john boehner's office on capitol hill. he delivered the plan to speaker boehner, a plan pretty much identical to the one president obama just won the election on. you might have thought that would have been leading, the problem would have been solved. not so much. >> flabbergasted. i looked at him, you can't be serious. i've just never seen anything like it. >> so when you
